American Yogini in the News

I did not know that one of my sweet guests was a writer for the Hartford Courant at the time! This appeared in the Sunday July 9th Lifestyle section:

The Juice Retreat

Vacationers, No Longer Satisfied With Sightseeing, Sign Up For Educational, Self-Improvement Programs

July 9, 2006

By JOANN KLIMKIEWICZ, Courant Staff Writer

>Joanne writes: “I was committed to making yoga a more regular part of my routine. I had a sudden urge to purge my closets and desk drawers of all the clutter that had accumulated in the last year. And I had this unprecedented excitement about cooking new foods, trying new recipes and ingredients – and just taking better care of myself.

It was as though I had returned home with suitcase of guiding principles that I could go back to whenever life got hectic or threw me a curveball. When I felt drained and ragged, I knew how to give myself my own mini-retreat.


And that, to me, is more valuable than the shiniest knick-knack in any souvenir shop” Thank you, Joann so very very much for this affirmation of my work.

July Kripalu Childrens Art and Yoga workshop was fantastic

Fairy Houses, giant spider webs, wizard of oz yoga with Nienke, NORTH Amercian Yogini ( she’s from Canada!). Looking forward to posting the pictures soon as an album on my site. We had lots of rain, but that didn’t seem to matter: swiming in the lake, singing with a new friends from Scotland with a surprise didgeridoo performance, drumming with Adrian, dancing with Mayla, journal making, humingbird feeders, yoga dancing, yoga running, lake swimming ( in the rain!), oh so so so much fun! Can hardly wait until next year to teach again at beautiful Kripalu Center!
